Tracing the Dislocation of a Sinti Family in a Genocidal Context: the R165 Collection of the German Federal Archives

The latest EHRI Blogpost, written by EHRI fellow Théophile Leroy, introduces a collection held at the German Bundesarchiv of importance for the Sinti and Roma genocide.

Racial research conducted by the Rassenhygienische Forschungsstelle from the late 1930s was used by the criminal police authorities to identify and deport individuals labeled as “Gypsies” and to achieve the Sinti and Roma genocide. The post follows the story of a Rhineland Sinti family and maps their persecution trajectories.

EHRI Seminar Lviv

EHRI Seminar Held Online from Lviv | "Documenting the War. Past and Present"


On October 3-7, 2022, the Center for Urban History of East Central Europe co-organized the EHRI online seminar "Documenting the War. Past and Present". Initially, the seminar was designed to focus on the history of the Lviv ghetto and public outreach approaches using digital mapping and storytelling tools. However, because of the new realities in Ukraine after the full-scale Russian invasion on February 24, 2022, we decided to change its framework. The seminar focused on the challenges of documenting, researching and teaching the history of the Holocaust and World War II against the background of living, witnessing, and documenting the Russian war against Ukraine.
